There are many types "antimalarial" and the treatment method is using a few of them together as "combination therapy". The most famous ones are probably Chloroquine or Doxycycline or Primaquine. usually because they are more effective and cheaper. There a number of other antimalarials that are less active or long lasting or effective against some special malaria types so the they are usually given in a combination with one of the first three drugs.
The components are different and many since there are different types of malaria medications... Google malaria and you will see a link you can access which lists all drugs and their chemical components...
